"SORPTION & BIOSORPTION" book is richly illustrated with more than 300 slides.

Electronic files of its slides are separately available for YOUR presentations.

The book on "SORPTION & BIOSORPTION" (2003) provides the backbone and a textbook for seminars and workshops on the topic. It summarizes the key information that has been accumulated over the past two decades of biosorption research. 

The book normally costs US$ 125 but it is provided with a special discount (~30%) at workshops.  It is highly recommended for the event audience to follow the presentations. 


The sorption operation is capable of removing and isolating specific chemical species from solution and as such it provides a basis for very effective technological applications.  Methodologies developed and established for examining conventional sorption processes can be used to study and develop biosorption and vice versa.  From this point of view, this whole book can be considered to be a one large case study focusing on heavy metal biosorption.  All the principles dealt with in the text (and presentations) are directly applicable in many broad aspects of various sorption and ion-exchange operations encountered in different industrial activities.

Bohumil Volesky is the President and Founder of BV SORBEX, Inc.,  an enterprise focusing on sorption and biosorption technology and its promotion.  He is also a Professor of Chemical Engineering at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, active in areas of Biochemical Engineering and Industrial Water Pollution Control. He has authored or coauthored close to 200 scientific papers and presented many invited lectures at international scientific meetings and seminars or workshops around the world.
He has been providing consulting services to numerous organizations.
Dr. Volesky earned his PhD in Biochemical Engineering at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.  His research interests are reflected in his earlier books on "Biosorption of Heavy Metals" (1990, CRC Press, Boca Raton, Florida) that he edited, and in a co-authored volume on "Modeling and Optimization of Fermentation Processes" (1992, Elsevier Science Publishers, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

Biosorption SEMINARS / WORKSHOPS  :    to be arranged                                                                                   

1-hour SEMINAR presentations or half-day and full-day WORKSHOPS can be organized at any location anywhere in the world.  These events can be held at institutions, as parts of conference programs or before/after conferences.
The choice of exact topics can be negotiated (please consult the book topics) depending on the interest of the audience. 

The presentations can have emphasis on chemistry, biology or process engineering including the contemporary computer simulation techniques used for sorption processes.  We explain and bring you the power of FEMLAB sorption simulation program - it can do even more for you.

We collaborate on arrangements for funding the event(s) providing a grant application outline for interested groups. See the details of seminar topics (click) - do not hesitate and be dynamic ...

Please register your potential interest by e-mailing to Dr. Volesky

We shall collaborate with you on the best presentation type for your interest and needs. 

Dr. Volesky is available for presentations and workshops anywhere - at a time of your convenience.
